essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. a "wizard of oz" reference. >> he's counting on those things. it's almost like he's in "men in black" and he thinks he has a flashy thing where he can say something and reverse himself and count on not being called for it. between fouling and the way that mitt romney has run, in a lot of ways if this is the way you can win a presidency, if he can win this way, i think it says horrible things about our policies. >> using the word lie. if you're willing to completely fool your base -- >> your own base. >> you might fool everybody. >> he's lying to the base or lying to the middle. i think one of the essential questions that will be settled on tuesday is does bs work? can you put out the
is the wall street journal on that story. even as mr. romney and mr. obama canceled a political appearances tuesday, the two campaigns -- escalated a heated exchange over mitt romney suggestion that the president also bailout had benefited china. he returned to pennsylvania in hopes of returning the momentum. the story wall street journal goes on to talk about that many have come out including those in the auto industry to say that the governor was wrong on this ad, that he is running in the state of ohio. we will talk about that more in about 10 minutes when reid wilson of the hot line joins us to talk about october surprises and all things campaign 2012. democratic caller, go ahead. caller: i think one of the things people are not realizing , and people who think the global warming who does not exist -- here's an issue. there was a geologist on cnn in explained that a cold front came in from the northwest, right through chicago. one day last week we were sitting at 80 degrees. the next we were sitting at 40 degrees. we went from 80 to 40. that cold front was directly down to the gulf of m
against you mr. romney. are you a turnaround expert and you are saying that these turnarounds were garbage so that is their offense. they've been saying it. >> cenk: i know. if one side has the weapon of just truth and the other of truth saying the economy is sluggish et cetera and a whole arsenal of lies, uneven playing field. my point michael is if i were the democrats, i would charge at the media so much harder and say you're not doing your job! you're being completely and utterly unfair to us, to progressives, to liberalal you're n nligent.. you' u' incompetent! you should show the facts on a daily basis. if you don't do that, you're biased. they're lying at it whereas we would be telling the truth. >> you're right. there's nothing you've said that wasn't true but you also have to say, what i said already which is the democrats do play their version of offense. it is just very different and right now, you're looking at a desperate campaign. they're coming back withing this radio ad about welfare. the president ob
of that. should mr. romney went, it says if mitt romney wins next week, enough democrats would probably be left to block his promise to roll back wall street rules enacted in response to the financial crisis. romney would be expected to appoint new leaders of the treasury department, securities and exchange commission and other agencies that would take a less aggressive approach. instead of timothy geithner romney is expected to fill the position with a less activist nominee. in addition, a romney administration could leave some posts under weekend acting heads. florida calling in, tom on our line for independents. caller: i am voting for romney mack. i would like to see romney in the senate. i do believe he is out there with his friends having a good time. and you show me your friends are. host: a toss up when it comes to seats in the senate. 11 seats. arizona, connecticut, indiana, massachusetts, montana, virginia, wisconsin. massachusetts, this is -- on our line for democrats. caller: thank you for c-span. i am a democrat, and voting for obama. i am voting for elizabeth warren. i do
you. overall, mr. romney, governor romney at the time, he left the state with debt. you hear how we set up a slush fund and all these great things he did for the state, which are totally untrue. i have to say, i have lived in new hampshire and a town over from where his vacation home is. the campaign itself, where he is changing positions it, from the time he was governor of massachusetts from what he is saying today, he has totally changed his whole direction. he was pro-life when he was the governor in massachusetts and now he is -- or he was not pro- life back then, and now he's pro-life. guest: certainly, candidates, as they go through time, can. change can i think someone might say the president, you could hold out certain examples of the president's record. changes positions. certainly between next tuesday and inauguration day, no matter who wins, you might see some curbing of some of these positions that were taken during the campaign. it's just a guess. but some of these things will change over time it. candidates will take a step back sometimes from their harder position th
to eliminate it. at a republican primary debate last year, mr. romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. he not only agreed, he went further. mr. romney not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast east coast storm better than washington, but that companies can do an even better job. he said it was immoral for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt. many don't like the idea of free aid for poor people or think people should pay for their bad decisions, which this week includes living on the east coast. >> what do you want me to say? >> nothing. i really don't want you to say anything. >> no, i want to say something. >> okay. go ahead and say something. >> that's absolutely ridiculous. >> okay. >> i think what mitt romney is absolutely ridiculous. >> oh. okay. >> this is what happens, though, when you're afraid to go after medicare, medicaid and social security and defense spending and reform taxes to bring more revenue to the federal government, you have to
, and as was mentioned by mr. o'connell, the transition happened when romney went from more an extreme conservativist position to the middle. i think it's something members in congress should take note of, americans will award those coming to the middle in trying solve a problem. i believe the president will win, and i believe the senate will remain in the democratic hands and the house the republican, and as people come together, i think it should be a recognition that they want folks to come together and solve these problems. i think the president has tried to make his case he's ready to do that. >> ford looks anxious. >> i don't think the president will win, but i think it will be close, and the question really is who will win ohio. we may not know because of november 17th. i think locally mitt romney will win virginia, and if he wins virginia, florida, ohio, colorado or new hampshire, he'll be the next president. i think the president at this moment has a little bit better chance in the electoral college. >> i can't offer to shave my mustache when we win ohio, but i think that will happen. but i
. >> mr. romney seemed to me to be a little wishy-washy. earlier in the debate, he made a statement about having a backbone. later he states that he wants to work with china, he wants to deal with pakistan. >> i want to say something about the moderators in these debates. i think they are one-sided, i think. i believe in governor romney and i hope people open their eyes and take notice of what is going on in our country. >> romney answers the questions. everybody keeps saying he kept tiptoeing around them, and he is not. he is straightforward. he is consistent, as to where obama has not been consistent. >> i thought the debate lagged off the questions. it got away from the foreign policy, and they started talking about the domestic economy, and i was trying to tie that in into what the questions were, and i do not think either candidate -- they kept going back to the economy. >> i felt governor romney has done an excellent job today, very presidential, and the main point at the end of the comments, our family has felt we are not being protected as a nation, that our borders are open, and
in a virtual tie with the president. but in ohio, romney has seen much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new steal production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimm here in northeast ohio. but biguestnnow is whether democratic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carry the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support from autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people walking through our plant with clipboards taking inventory. they were going to liquidate our facility. that's a fact. so mitt romney can air brush this ll i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this
forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. itre saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufac

faced with two options of boxes, romney on the right, obama on the left, mr. nuts chose to do his business on the right. it's his stamp of disapproval for the republican hopeful. mr. nuts has a short history of picking losers. owners say he foresaw the defeat of the steelers in super bowl xlv and the new england patriots the following year. >> which of course gives this cat incredible credibility. >> i would think the one he didn't do his business in would be the winner. >>> 5:56. next half hour coming up thieves snatching mail out of people's boxes. the bay area crime spree is caught on camera. >>> traffic jams, gas lines and desperate commuters. how tempers are flaring in the aftermath of superstorm sandy. >>> an angry bicyclist beats a muni agent and police are trying to track him down. we have the security video for you next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, >> your realtime captioner: linda marie macdonald. >>> a blue tal muni attack, an agent beaten for doing his job. >> lock lines for gas and the mother of all gridlock. the anger and frustration for the victims of superstorm sandy. >> i'
criticism. today, romney decided he was done playing mr. nice guy. >> the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he -- he has the campaign slogan which is forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> meanwhile, much of the eastern seaboard from new jersey to connecticut remains a disaster area as the cleanup continues after hurricane sandy. according to the a.p., the storm is responsible for the deaths of at least 74 people. 4.5 million residents still without power. and adding to the frustration, gasoline is becoming an increasingly precious commodity in some area. traffic has become so bad, in new york city, mayor michael bloomberg mandated any commuter car entering the city must have at least three people in it. president obama and governor romney's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show president obama lead big six points in eye but locked in a tight balle with romney in new hampshire and wisconsin. nearly all interviews conducted before hurricane sandy, which just might end up being the defining momen
obama and mitt romney also can't ignore hurricane sandy. so today marked a brief suspension of the presidential campaign. mr. obama canceled campaigning in florida, wisconsin and flew back to washington to help coordinate the federal hurricane response. mitt romney canceled events in wisconsin and florida. neither campaign wants to appear insensitive with so many americans in harm's way. but the weather delay won't help romney. >> if it benefits anybody, it probably benefits the president because he gets to look presidential because he is the president. he's in charge of the government and in charge of that response. >> romney's campaign is thinking of sending him to new jersey later this week where he could meet with storm victims a with governor chris christie, a romney ally. president obama may sit wisconsin tomorrow. of course, we invite you to stay with nbc bay area news for continuing coverage of the storm sandy. you can always go to nbcbayarea.com for the latest updates. >>> still ahead here at 6:00, the new invention that could prevent some surprising injuries in hos
.p >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters overerir economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their employers worried, asking, "is it true? are our jobs birng shipped to china?"bs and the reason they've been making these calls is that governor romney's been running an adhat says so.ha except it's not true. >> brown: chrysler has said it has no plans to move the jobs. the romney campaign insists it's standing by its claim. there promised to be much more ttling over economic policy,tt with the race in a dead heat and going down to the wire. we look now at the jobs picture with two economists with ties to the presidential candidates: john taylor of stanford university and the hoover institution. he advises the romney campaign on economic issues. and austan goolsbee of the univsitysif chf ago's booth school of business. he served as president obama's chairman of the council of economic advisers until last yagr. to the extent mob set
barack obama is today. >> bill: mr. pelley low goes in your recent polling we remind everybody you pulled out of west virginia north carolina and virginia. romney is going to take those states. you suspended polling there do you believe that tonight. >> it was based on the head-to-head number. barack obama was leading 48% to 40% in those three states. six weeks ago. then 4 will% 44. now it's 48%, 48%. common denominator barack obama is still stuck at 48%. so, if, in virginia, especially or in bell test get up to where it is is in new hampshire and ohio to 49%, we would certainly take another look and jump back. in it's still stuck at 4%. as incumbent as the known quantity, very difficult to get to 50. when you can't seem to grow beyond that. >> still standing to analysis. in ohio, rasmussen today, has romney up by two. >> i can tell you, we pulled ohio last week. and i looked at the two polls that had obama plus 4. i don't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidate
with mainstream ohio. >> i have a quick question for both of you. mr. mandel, if they send obama to the white house and you to the senate, and to you, sen. brown, of romney carries the state but sends you to washington, what do you take away? >> i believe that mitt romney will be the next president but if president obama is reelected, i will work with them and i will work to move the ball down the field economically for the state and our country. if the voters of the state of ohio go in that direction, they don't want a rubber-stamp, the votes for his party 98% of the time. >> i think if this happens, people sitting back and say, sharon brown -- sherrod brown is his own guy. he fights for his district and i would guess -- it could be a mixed message. but of course i'd work with mitt romney. i can recite a dozen cases we have made this way. >> the coin toss -- i think i got this right, mr. mandel? >> i was inspired to join the marine corps by my grandparents. one of my grandfathers was liberated by allied troops and the other served in the air force. we can debate like this and we can disagree
there are challenges, we come together and help one another and that help is needed now. >> reporter: and while romney didn't shy away from criticizing the president's record, he did not mention mr. obama by name. >> we should not continue on the same path, but it's time to take a new path, bold aggressive change. >> reporter: meanwhile, paul ryan and his wife jana spent halloween in their hometown in wisconsin taking their kids trick-or-treating. a maris poll shows a tightening in key states, the president still holds leads in three of them. in iowa, president obama maintains a six-point lead over mitt romney, down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half, he now trails by three points. and in new hampshire, it's basically a dead heat. the president at 49%, romney with 47%. the granite state will be mitt romney's final stop before election day. >> reporter: the schedule tells you everything, the president four times in ohio. he'll be multiple times in wisconsin and iowa these last four days. only one stop each in florida and new hampshire and nevada, matt. >
from ohio. good morning, john. caller: good morning. good morning, mr. ryan. i am calling to ask you if you're familiar with the ballots that are -- they're having trouble with in switching over when they're voting for mitt romney and at the end the check mark is then over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there's been a couple of programs of it. one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they've had a few, i'm not going to say a gaggle of them but there's been quite a few. but then i heard you earlier on the delphi workers, that you and senator brown was trying to work something out for them. i just watched a program on that where they were interviewing the delphi workers themselves. they said they have no pension. they're not getting any pension. so it's kind of -- this kind of spin sounds like it's coming from you there a little bit. >> congressman ryan? >> well you know. it's a tough situation, i will tell you that, with the delphi salary folks. we have been working on it a long, long time. my former coaches and family members who are in that group, i'm
that 20 million figure. i think we can do a lot better and governor romney certainly have the program to do that. in ohio, we have proven that it can be done. host: judas on the democratic line from ohio, you are on with mr. bennett. -- judith on the democratic line. caller: i am maybe 5 miles from there. i have two sons who have graduated from private colleges and that they cannot find jobs in their field. they graduated from college in like 2002 and my other son graduated in 2001 from american university. they are unable to find jobs. they want to raise the retirement age again to 72 or something. i retired. i am a retired nurse. i personally do not understand why we keep raising the retirement age for elderly people who really need to enjoy their retirement, okay? host: mr. bennett. guest: judith brings up two good points. 50% of graduates right now are unable to find jobs in the field have chosen to study. we think that just borders on criminal after they have made that investment. in many cases, they have had to borrow substantial sums of money to complete their college education
will elect somebody who does. [cheers and applause] mr. president, if you do not know how to bring america together, if you do not know how to build a coalition, get out of the way it so we can elect mitt romney because he does.
